Gold, a symbol of a symbol, therefore by it's very nature is already twice removed from reality. Black Elk referred to it as "... the yellow metal that makes white men crazy. " , no kidding, huh ? What better to symbolize "crazy" than government control . Thoreau, my favorite American philosopher and naturalist, died in abject poverty, go figure !
